Movie News: Channing Tatum Turns 'Genius'; 'Paranormal Activity 5' Gets Title and Release Date

Thu, 09/18/2014 - 11:13

Struck by Genius: Channing Tatum could get a beautiful mind if he signs on to this project being tailored for him. Struck by Genius is the true story of a party animal who gained uncanny math skills after getting beat up outside a karaoke bar.

Or so. As it turns out, most of these things simply aren’t true. The guys at All Time 10s have compiled this handy video list that would make The Mythbusters proud.   If...

Novel Idea: Why Kids Need to Read the Book First

Mon, 09/15/2014 - 10:50

  The book is always better. You have heard it before. You may have even said it. To be fair, we have had far too many reasons. The book-to-movie transitions, with a few notable exceptions like To Kill a Mockingbird or The Shawshank Redemption, have, for years, fallen short of readers and their great expectations. We have all walked out of the theater shaking our heads about things left out, storylines altered, and the “how could they do that” that ruined every bit of...

Watch: 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' Trailer Turns Katniss into a Weapon

Mon, 09/15/2014 - 10:00

So far the buildup toward The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1 has been one of our favorite movie campaigns of the year. The marketing folks have done some creepy, subtle and even subversive things with their poster art so far, and the teaser trailers have all done a restrained job of, well, teasing. With the movie due in just about three months (tickets go on sale this October 29!), Lionsgate has decided to move away from teasing in order to show something more substantial. And fans...

Watch: Keanu Reeves Is the Craziest Dog Owner Ever in New 'John Wick' Trailer

Mon, 09/15/2014 - 09:53

Movies about hit men, gangsters or bank robbers coming out of retirement for one last hurrah are a dime a dozen. They all tend to follow the same general rule of a badass dude trying to enjoy the late stages of life only to get inadvertently wrapped back up into the lifestyle they left behind. Sometimes it's because someone is trying to find them (A History of Violence), other times they're defending an innocent person (The Equalizer). The upcoming John Wick, however, may take...

THAT'S Chris Pratt? See His Amazing First Head Shot

Mon, 09/15/2014 - 08:25

Some actors and actresses would rather hide from their early career choices, chalking it up to inexperience and lack of guidance, but then you have a guy like Chris Pratt who embraces his own retro hilarity by continually posting old pics of himself on Twitter. Soon after Guardians of the Galaxy came out, Pratt posted a pic of the Scooby Doo van he lived out of before moving to Los Angeles, and then more recently he dug up his first head shot...which, as you'll see below, is pretty amazing....
